Why Chris Mortensen chose Priest River

We hope to retire down to this house some day.

What makes this house unique

Very quiet, established neighborhood makes for relaxing mornings waterside and some of the most calm water in north Idaho.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful spot! We had such a relaxing time and enjoyed every minute. The fish teased quite a bit, only caught a few but sent them back. Enjoyed watching the action up and down the river on the weekend. the house is perfect and the beds are so comfy. Great sleeping!! We are already planning to come back next year. Thanks for everything.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 spent a July week here, it was very fun and relaxing! The house is well kept and very functional. The RV spot is nice, although my Dad got to practice his trailer backing skills getting in and out. The water is deep and milfoil free right off the dock. You can spend a day swimming and boating here and never need to even put sandals on, the dock and deck are in good enough shape and the sandy area is nice. The shallow swimming area is a bit rocky and could do with some of the large sharp rocks being removed, or maybe some round rocks added to smooth out the river bottom.

Amazing views and location!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 people and we had plenty of space! We loved the location and views. The deck was wonderful to sit outside and eat or fish from! We caught plenty of fish for a fish fry! Our neighbors were friendly, including all of the locals. The kitchen had all of the supplies you would need to make a meal, and the beds were so comfortable! Definitely would recommend this place for the future.

Relaxing get away

  • 5 of 5

My parents, husband and 2 year old lab spent five very relaxing days here. The view is gorgeous. We saw bald eagles and blue herons every morning.

The kitchen was easy to use and the deck is very comfortable. Even enjoyed s'mores on the fire pit.

Was a great time.
